Miller will give the following resume of the
milling industry for the past week: .
We are able to report a very much im
proved feeling on the platform this week,
the recent advance in wheat having in
spired a considerable degree of confidence.
Millers generally report a better demand for
flour, and have advanced prices, which they
are obtaining in many instances. The
greater portion of the trade is on domestic
account, but there 13 at the same time a
good export inquiry. Winter wheat mills
are reported to be shutting from the lack of
wheat, and our millers are much firmer iv
their views. The flour production in this
city last week showed a slight falling off, be
ing 103,375 barrels, an average of 17,220
barrels per day, against 112,985 barrels the
preceding week. The shipments are not
quite as heavy as the output, and some of
the mills are evidently storing to a slight ex
tent. As to the; current week, the produc
tion promises to waver between 18.000 and
19.000 barrels daily. There were sixteen ]
mills in operation Tuesday, and they were I
making about 18,000 barrels, the Washburn
mills running the strongest and to their

A NEW HOSPITAL
On a Most Excellent Plan—Dr. Water
house Locates in Minne
Ami Establishes one of His Highly Success.
ful Mutual Aid JlaspHiils—How
It Has Worked Elsewhere
—A Worthy Instl
About six years ago Dr. J. A. Waterhouse,
a gradpate from the Eclectic Medical insti
tute, having located in Bay City, Michigan,
conceived and carried into effect a new sys
tem of hospital service, different from any
that had ever existed previously. Doing a
large practice in Bay City, whore hundreds
of lumbermen were brought from the woods
for treatment of diseases or accidents, and
seeing, too, that in a majority of cases the
patients suffered from poor treatment, this,
in turn, resulting from lack of ready cash to
liquidate doctor's bills, he modelled in his
mind a sart of ''Mutual Aid Association,"
as it were, by which many mule or female,
by the outlay of a small amount, could
INSURE FULL MEDICAL TREATMENT
of the best for a period of one year. Thus in
IS7S the Michigan and Wisconsin Hospital
company came, into existence, founded
upou strictly business principles; and from
the beginning, as vow, took the following
method of doing business; they iasued two
kinds of tickets of admission to the hospital
—a $5 ticket, good for one year from date of
purchase, which entitled tlia owner to ad
mission, treatment aiid board iv any hos
pital which should be conducted by the com
pany, whenever disabled by sickness or in
jury during the year; also to medicine free,
at any of the hospital dispensaries, and to
medicine sent free to any part of the coun
try. The second tickets, purchasable for $10,
included all the benefits of the other, and In
addition an indemnity of *5 per week to the
patient during the time he should be under
treatment atany of the hospitals for any dis
abling accident or disease. Also a provision
was made that patients without tickets could
be admitted at reasouable rates or treated at
the hospital surgeon's oiiiee.
THE KXTBIiPRISE WAS SUCCESSFUL
beyond ail expectation, so that a branch hos
pital w;:- opened at Stevens Point, Wiscon
sin, in tBB2, where the company has erected
a three-story brick building. 40x70 feet, at a
cost of $10,000. in July of last year still
another hospital was opened at Eau Clairo,
where a $21,000 building 00x120 feet has
been erected. The report for the hospital
yeaj ending March 81, 1884, bears out the
claim that their hospitals have a lower mor
tality rate, and get patients out sooner than
than any other similar institution. Last year
there were 740 patients admitted at the "Bay
City Hospital" of which number there were
only 8 deaths; at "Stevens Point Hospital,"
there were only 7 deaths out of 340 admitted,
and at "Eau Claire Hospital," since its foun
dation, there have been only 4 deaths from
the whole number of 4SO patients admitted,
which makes the remarkable record of
LESS THAN" A TIIKEE TEB CBXT. MORTALITY. -
This is due largely to the excellent care
given, and the fact that the physicians re
side in the hospital, and give their entire
time to ttie care of the patients. And, then,
not a little is due to the mere arrangements
of the wards as concerns light, warmth, rec
reation parlors, in short, every comfort for
the sick and injured. At every hospital
there is a dispensary supplied with $000 worth
THE MINNEAPOLIS HOSPITAL.
Minneapolis was long ago cited as being
a most admirable location for a branch hos
pital of this company, in order that the army
of lumbermen and the hosts of young meu
coming to the city with biit little" money and
no friends might receive aid when sickness
should overtake them. Following this up
the management has succeeded in leasing
for a term of years, the third and a part of
the second tloor of 1,101, Washington ave
nue south, in the L. D. Day block, which is
particularly adapted to the uses for which
they are intended. Upon the second floor
are a suit of offices for the management and
operating rooms, and above on the third is a
kitchen, dining room, bath rooms, surgical
rooms, wards and rooms for private patients,
—in all twenty finely furnished rooms. In
every room there is "the latest improved fur
niture, consisting of beds with spring mat
Besides a competent corps of nurses, there
are two house physicians and surgeons, Dr.
J. A. Waterhouse, who will be the resident
surgeon for the Minneapolis branch, and Dr.
Alexander Campbell, a skilled eye and ear
specialist and surgeon from New York city.
S. B. Nelson, who has been connected with
the company ever since its organization, is
the general agent for the "Minneapolis Hos
pital," and his courteous manner is appre
ciated by every one who meets the gentle
This institution, which is a great acquisi
tion to the city, was duly opened on Tuesday,
April 8, and already a large number of tick
ets have been taken by young men who have
no home here. Here, as in in other cities in
which branches have been established, pa
trons are drawn largely from the lumber
men, who are at all times more than others
subject to accidents.

Havana Powder Explosion.
Havana, April 30.—The effects of the ex
plosion was terrible. Up to the present time
the dead number twenty-one and the wound
ed seventy-nine. The latter are scattered
all over the town, having been wounded by
falling debris. Many are severely injured.
Of the detachment of twenty-seven soldiers
n the magazine at the time of the explosion,
eight escaped unhurt. The magazine con
tained 1,000,000 cartridges, 200,000 kilo
grams of powder, and one barrel of dyna
mite. The warehouse at San Jose and the
planters' warehouse sustained serious dam
age, as did also several churches and houses.
The second shock, stronger than the first,
was not caused by the explosion of gas, but
by the explosion of the magazine. The first
shock was less violent, because caused by
powder drying in the open air. The gas
company will be able to-morrow to light the
.whole city again.
THE HAUNTED CORRIDOR.
"I don't believe » word of it!" said Aunt
The wine-like glow of sunset yet illumined
the great bay window; but the rest of tho
apartment was already enshrouded in the
gray shadows of twilight, in whose misty in
distinctness the huge chairs of carved oak
looked like gigantic monsters from some for
eign shore. From the walls frowned downdark
old family portraits, and the crimson hang
ings above the arched doors waved restlessly
back aud forth iv the draughts of wind that
swept thruugh the vast corridor.
"I don't believe a word of it!" repeated
Aunt Rebecca, with more emphasis than be
fore. "A ghost story, indeed!"
"Tell me about it, Violet," said young
Ilnzlewood, to whom the deep bay-window,
with its far-off prospect of suowy hills, veiled
in gathering twilight, to say nothiug of pret
ty Violet Orme's close vicinage, were in
finitely more attractive than the more modern
reglous of Alnwick Place.
"It is not much of a story," said Violet,
flushing up to her very eyelashes at the sound
of her own soft voice, "only years ago, long
before my great-graudpapa Built this house,
the site was all one unbroken wood, and
there was a tradition that a beautiful girl was
murdered by her lover. Her grave, they said,
was beneath the foundations of the house;
but I scarcely credit this part of the legend."
"Of course not," interrupted Miss Rebec
ca, with a toss of her false curls. "I have no
patience with tho relies of old superstition."
"What are you looking for, auut? Havo
you dropped anything? Shall I call for Har
ris to bring a candle j" asked Violet, a mo
ment afterwards coming to her aunt's side.
"Nothing, nothing," said Miss Rebecca,
with a little embarassment in her voice.
"Come—don't stay here any longer in the
biting eokl, unless you both want a week's
medicine and doctor's visits."
"It is not coid, Aunt Rebecca," pleaded
Violet, "aud the starlight is so beautiful on
the stone pavement. Just let us wait until
that llcry planet mounts a little higher."
But a peremptory summons from Col.
Orme himself, who had just walked from a
comfortable nap beside the glowing fire in
the library, to a sort of vague wonder as to
"where Rebecca and the young people could
possibly be," speedily settled the matter.
"Nevermind, Violet," whispered Charles
Hazelwood; "by and by when your father
has gouo to his room and Aunt Rebecca is
busy with her curl-papers in he.r own special
dormitory, we can have a starlight stroll
through the ghost's territory!"
Violet gave him an arch glance as she
tripped after Aunt Rebecca into the hall
which led to Col. Orme's brilliantly lighted
"I wish Capt. Hazlewood wouldn't remain
out there," said Aunt Rebecca anxiously.
"He will catch his death of cold; and, be
"Besides what, Aunt Rebecca?"
"Violet," said the maiden lady, "I wish
you would go down and see if the housekeep

that's a good girl. I think I shall go to
Violet went to execute her aunt's behests.
How peacefully the distant hills aud val
leys slept iv their snowy mantles that glori
ous December night. It reminded one of a
lovely painting executed with brushes dip
ped in liquid pearl, and shaded with pencils
of glimmering silver!
At least, so they seemed to. Charles Hazel

gigantic bay-window, nearly hidden by the
curtains, the faded splendor of whose tarn
ished embroidery carried the mind uncon
ociously a century backward on the stream of
time. But then Charles Hazelwood was in
The tall, old-fashioned clock in the hall
was striking twelve, and the colony of crick
ets under the warm hearth-stone were fall
ing into a dreamy, sleepy sort of chirp, as if
their small lungs were fairly wearied out,
when Aunt Rebecca emerged from her door,
treading on tiptoe, and carrying a dim light
in her hand.
Now, Aunt Rebecca, In nodding false curls
lace coiffure, and eighteen-year-old style of
dress, was a very different sort of personage
from Aunt Rebecca, with her head tied up in
a silk handkerchief, her false curls laid aside
and a long white dressing-robe enveloping
her lank figure; and the latter was by no
means the more prepossessing of the two.
Probably some such consciousness swept
across the good spinster's brain, for she
shuttled with accelerated rapidity past the
solemn eyes of the grave old family portraits
on the wall.
"I am sure I dropped them somewhere
here," she murmured, pausing in front o
the bay-window. "How provoking! There
goes my candle out! But I believe I can find
them, however, the starlisht is so bright.
Mercy upon us! what is that? The ghost!—
And Aunt Rebecca fled shrieking down

inquirers surrounded Aunt Bebecca, who,
evinced strong jsyinptorns of an intention to
go into hysterics.
"It glided past me like a gust of wind!" she
shrieked, replying at hazard to the questions
rained down upon her —"all in white, with
that dreadful mark of blood upon its throat!
It's a warning- I know it's a warning that I
have'nt long to live! Oh, what shall I do—
what shall I do?"
"But I don,t understand what you are do

of night," interrupted Col. Orme, staring at

were an actual occurrence in real life or

Upon which Aunt Rebecca gave way to the
combined inllueuces of her brother's unkind
remark and the fright of ghost-seeing, and
fairly fainted without further notice. Ac
cording to the usual custom of womanhood
on such occasions, Col. Orme aud all the
other gentlemen were hustled out into the
hall, while the victim of the female officials
was deluged with eau de cologne, stifled with
burnt feathers, and vigorously treated with
"She's coming to, poor dear creature!"
was the final verdict hurftd at Col. Orme
through a crack in the door.
"Well, I'm glad of It, I'm sure," said the
Colonel dolorously, rubbing his hands, "for
it's cold out here in the hall. Way nilloa!
is this you, my little Violet? What's thp mat
ter? You haven't seen a ghost I hopei"
"No, papa," faltered Violet, "but
"Suppose we three adjourn into the library,
Col. Orme, and I will undertake the task of
explanation," interposed Charles Hazlewood,
while Violet's cheeks grew like flame.
"Well, may I venture to inquire what all
this means J" interrogated the bewildered
Colonel when the library door was safely
"It means, sir," said Charles, laughinsr.
yet a little puzzled how to proceed, "that Vi
olet, your daughter, and I were just looking
out at the stars, in the embrasure of the
great hall window, when we saw some one
approaching with a light. Violet went to see
what the apparition meant, when Miss Re
becca, whom it proved to be, dropped her
candle, and ran shrieking away."
"So Violet was the ghost, eh?" said iho
Colonel, repressing a very strong inclination
"You see, papa," interposed that young
lady, "I wore my long cashmere mantle, for
I was afraid of taking cold, and it was tied
at the throat with red ribbons, and"—
"And Aunt Rebecca took it for granted
that you were the murdered heroine of our
family ghost story,', said the Colonel, archly,
"But allow me to ask, young people, what
you were so much interested in?"
"Well sir," said Hazlewood, I had just
asked her if she wouldn't marry me—don't
run away, Violet—and she said; :. 'Yes,' that
is if I could win her father's consent."
"Well?" ' '. :■■■ ',•■,,- •■-;'
"And I would like to know what hsr father
says to the proposition?" | added the young
officer, laughingly, detaining Violet, who was
struggling to escape.
"He says," answered Col. Orme, "that
your intrepidity in lacing the ghost deserves
some reward, and he likewise supposes that
his daughter must be allowed to have her own ,
way. Take her, Charley, and don't spoil j
her! No thanks now, but let me go and see

"Papa," whispered Violet, as he rose, with
his hand on the door.

his sister's health. There is no evidence
that he ever didjietray Violet's secret; but
two things may be regarded as settled facts

Aunt Rebecca strenuously denies the exist

niece's white mantle with cherry trimmings;
the other is, that she is particularly careful

j THE CLOTHES THEy "WEAR.
How Members of Congress Array TJiemslves
-. — Ocliiltree the liest Dressed cjlan in
• the House.
The announcement that Paris, which sets j
the fashions for all the world, has discarded j
j black and returned to dark blue suits with
■ brass buttons, is hailed with delight
j by at least one member of the congress,says
! a Washington letter to the St Louis Post Bis
'■ patch. The venerable Mr. Poland, of Ver
j mont, who was as much' noted ; during his
1 earlier days in congress tor clinging to
i the blue suit and brass buttons of his wed
; ding days as was Blue Jean Williams for the
' wearing of jeans, still appears upon the floor
I of the house with the same dark blue suit and
the same brass buttons. No amount of ridi
cule could persuade him to lay them aside.
i lie has stood by his friends in their retire
| ment, and now that they are coming again
into fashion they will honor him, as they have
been honored by him.. Sixty-nine years of
age, he is as straight as a man of 29, and but
I for his white beard and hair you could scarce
jly think him past 50. His clothes are al
■ ways the same, a dark blue, almost black
color,swallow tail coat with flat brass buttons,
and vest and pants of the same material, al
neatly made, thongh not fitting with any
special degree of closeness. They are care
fully brushed, and present a very tastefull
appearance, and were it not for the peculiar
cut and color and the odd appearance of the
flat buttons, Mr. Poland would pass for one
of the best dressed men in the house.
It does not happen that the most promi
nent men in congress are the best dressers.
Take Mr. Morrison and Judge Kelley, the
leaders of the tariil discussion on either side
as examples. They are not the worst dressed
men in the house' yet they are far from being
neatly attired. Mr. Morrison seems never
to pay any attention to his personal appear
ance. His slouch hat is awry an d banged
and twisted to the greatest extreme,his loose
fitting black coat is often rusty and liberally
sprinkled with daudrufl and dust at the shoul
ders and collar. His low-cut vest exposes a
rumpled shirt-front, though be it said to his
credit, it is not stained with tobacco juice, as
in the case of some members who might be
mentioned. His pants sit loosely, with an
inclination to "bag" at the knees.
Judge Kelley is a trifle better dressed than
Mr. Morrison. He is a much slimmer man,
physically. There is no good reason why
Mr. Morrison's clothes should not sit well,
for he is well enough built to.be a tailor's
delight, while Kelley is so slender that no
tailor could.make him look well as to clothes.
He usually wears a dark, neatly-fitting suit
of red or brown, an old plug hat, shoes
none too shiny, and a general appearance
which indicates little attention to his clothes.
But when he rises in his place to make a
speech on the tariff, or upon any other im
portant subject, no man in the house or
senate is listened to more intently, and no
man's words carry with them more weight.
Mills, of Texas, another tariff agitator, is
a close second to Morrison as regards dress.
The crop of dust and dandruff upon his col
lar and shoulders is usually pretty nearly
equal to the Illinois statesman. His slouchy
black coat, shines with wear; his thin, gray
hair is very much frowzled; his shoes are
guiltless of blacking, and he has the general
appearance of a man who needs "brushing
Bland, of new silver-dollar fame, is anoth
er person who needs a guardian, so far as
dress is concerned. He usually wears a
short, rough, dusty sack coat with conven
ient pockets for his hands. His vest is well
open at the front, his beard twisted and
pulled, and this man, who might be quite
good-looking, permits himself to be remarked
as one of the worst-dressed members of the
Another man whose dress is quite as pecu
liar as that of Mr. Poland is Mr. Chase of
Rhode Island. He wears a Quaker suit, the
coat a half swallow tail, with narrow stand
ing collars, edged with velvet, a high-cut
black vest, black pants, and a broad brim
med black hat. He is a quiet, inoffensive
sort of man who uses the Quaker "thees and
thous" in conversation with his fellow
church-men; but is as "fly" on the tariff
question as any man on the Republican side.
He has astonished a good many people in the
house in ids short experience there of his fa
miliarity with this complicated subject.
Culberson of Texas, is a man who clothes a
good figure very badly. He is tall and big
and broad-shouldered. A good tailor and a
good, hair dresser would make him a hand
some man, but Culberson makes him any
thing but that. His • hair always looks as
though he had just gotten out *of bed, his
beard is rough, his clothes hang loosely upon
his well-developed figure, and*"there are sus
picious stains of tobacco upon his shirt front.
Senator Butler, of South Carolina, who
was prominent a few years ago as an alleged
actor in the Hampton massacre, is one of
the best dressers in the senate. To describe
his dress would be difficult • because he has
the happy faculty of being well dressed with
out calling attention to that fact. His gray
hair is always combed, his mustache always
neatly trimmed, and his handsome face al
ways closely shaven. He is tall and well
formed and always well dressed. His clothes
are neatly brushed and his boots well black
ened. lie left a leg on one of the southern
battle fields, but walks with a firm, elastic
tread scarcely giving an intimation of that
fact by his manner. - ' <■■ \
Gov. Dorsheimer, of New York, is one of
the neatest dressers in the house. lie usual
ly wears a Prince Albert coat buttoned close
ly in front, and often with a bouquet at the
button hole, his sparse hair and iron gray
side whiskers well brushed. He is very tall
and well developed, and there is no reason
why so good a figure should not be well
Belford, of Colorado,, dresses as badly as
he looks. He is not to blame, of'course, for
his very red hair, and perhaps not for his
red face, but he might dress better. He is
wealthy and has a good enough figure, so
that clothes might look well on him, but they
never do. Take him on the street, at his
home, in the house, or at the i president's
table, he is always the same illy dressed Bel
ford. His clothes appear never to have been
brushed, and his shirt front, which is usually
stained with tobacco, is always rumpled.
Tom Ochiltree dresses j well. He rejoices
in a plentiful supply of well-made and well
fitting clothes. His red hair is usually well
brushed and his hard cheek smoothly shaven.
Sometimes he appears in a black Prince Al
bert, closely buttoned across his well-devel
oped stomach; at other- times in a dark gray
suit, neatly fitting; then again in a suit of
brown, which seems to be a favorite-: with
him and is quite . becoming .to his style of
beauty. Whatever may be said of Ochiltree,
he is certainly one of if*not the best dressed
man in the house.
Gen. Rosec'rans pays little attention to
dress. The same peculiarities which mark
the collars and shoulders of , the coats of
Morrison and J Mills and ; Belford are some
times observed in the case os Gen ; Rose
crans. He usually wears; a short sack coat
and is not at all a military-looking man, ei
ther in dress or figure. However, it is prob
able that he may "brush up" somewhat now
as his name is being bandied about by per
sons of political .prominence, as that of an
available presidential candidate.;:;.'

Toronto Visited by •Dynamiters to
Blow-up the Parliament Buildings.
Toiiox'To, April —A profound sensation
was caused hero through the discovery of two
powerful dynamite cartridges with wive and
fuse attached, under the crown lands office,
parliament buildings. They were found by
the son of the caretaker this afternoon. A
thorough search disclosed two more car
tridges, under the steps asproaching the
speaker's chambers. These, having also
wire and fuse attached. The dynamite
was placed in position to-day,
as the cartridges could not have
failed to be discovered had they been there
before. The excitement around the parlia
ment buildings reigns supreme. ' The cart
ridges are about six inches long by an inch
and a half iv diameter, and are seventeen,
called JStna Powder company, Chicago. The
shells appeared to be newly oiled, .to keep
out moisture. One cartridge would have
been sufficient to blow up a wing of the
building. The miscreants must have been
disturbed, as the attachment was found a
short distance from the cartridges.
